For today’s prompt, write a poem with at least four of the following eight words:

  1. flat
  2. ring
  3. lavish
  4. vessel
  5. paper
  6. blacklist
  7. gaudy
  8. tooth

It was her flat one toothed head

And her gaudy dress that

Marked her as a woman of notoriety,

A woman to be guarded about.

The ring of bling about her

Left you wondering about her lavishness.

What sort of person was it who

Flaunted

Flounced

Her way to the top.

On the way she was blacklisted

For the paper trail was long

Had a lot to do with empty vessels

And making a lot of noise.
